On April 2017, EDR Group was mentioned in an article on Fortune.com, titled "President Trump’s Budget Proposal Could Jeopardize $38 Billion in Transit Projects: Report." The article referenced findings from Economic Implications of Proposed Public Transit Capital Funding Cuts, a study completed by EDR Group for the American Public Transportation, which found that the Administration’s proposed cuts would provide for a severe loss of investment spending. The cuts would jeopardize $38 billion of planned projects. The 502,000 jobs at risk equate to 49,000 jobs every year in America’s local communities over a ten-year period. The type of jobs directly impacted include general construction and public transit equipment manufacturing. In addition, 300,000 longer-term jobs associated with permanent, ongoing, economic growth and development were in jeopardy.
